The game will be the return trip of a home-and-home series. Oregon traveled to Baylor during the 2018-19 season, losing 47-57 at Ferrell Center in Waco, TX. 

All time, the Ducks are 1-2 against the Bears with the program's lone win coming at Matthew Knight Arena on November 16th, 2015 in a 74-67 victory. Oregon would lose the return trip the following season 49-66.

The Ducks will return starting point guard Will Richardson along with welcoming 5-star center Nathan Bittle, Oklahoma transfer De'Vion Harmon, and JUCO All-American Rivaldo Soares.
